 :jumpy: Thanks Puddin. The crocodile god is Sobek. Given enough time, the temple can be identified. I don't remember Egypt being mentioned at all.  ???

The female statue looks like a match for the Lakshmi statue at Holy Lake in Mauritius. (source)

Vietnameses use Roman characters. I guess this is where racers pick up new clues.

I think this could be the church on Tibidabo Hill in Barcelona.

DEFINITELY looks like Barcelona. here are some of my pictures overlooking the city from the hills (I think from Parc Guell)... I definitely remember it being a very flat city and that there were only very, very few buildings that are very tall (La Sagrada Familia being one of the most prominent)

The statue of Christopher Columbus is also known as Cristobal Colon, and it's right by the waterfront -- it's at the very end of Las Ramblas (the famous street with crazy street vendors, side shows, and such).

No it doesn't... when I first saw it I thought it was western-looking but if you look up close at the face of the clock, it looks like there is a floral-esque design. Maybe more indicative of an Islamic culture? Kuwait? Now is Egypt a possibility?
